FAQ:
Spoiler:
How to patch Pokémon Grey:
  1. Download a clean FireRed Rom.
  2. Open that Rom in the latest version of XSE.
  3. At the top of XSE select tools and click 'Rom resizer'.
  4. Now click 'Expand'.
  5. Download a tool called 'A-Ptch'.
  6. Open it up, make sure you applying a Patch.
  7. Select the original file as that Rom.
  8. Select the Patch as the Patch you've downloaded.
  9. Click 'run' and that's it.
  10. You should now be able to play it in Visualboy Advance.
Now if the patching fails it's because you've downloaded the wrong region code of the FireRed rom. I'm not sure which region code I started on, It's either (E) or (U).

Wow, pretty amazing, I'm surprised nobody has posted yet!
The tiles, scripts, story all look pretty good. :3

I did notice some grammar errors, though. Anyway, good luck, this is a great looking hack!
Thank you, If your refering to the 'Tig' thing, that is now fixed due to public demand. If you've found more which I'm guessing you have from 'errors', can you list them so I can fix them ASAP. I hate Grammar errors but sometimes I make stupid mistakes...

I love the graphics of this hack. The story is also interesting, somewhat psychological. And a scripting error: "Tig, your it" should be "Tag, you're it"
Thank you, That is fixed.
I'm glad you like the story, It took me a while.

is the sixth screen shot a flashback?
I want to learn how did you the pallet all gray...

anyways awesome hack! keep it up. :)
The grey palettes are created through ASM.
I myself only know how to activate it,
It's Colcolstyles that actually made it and gave me permission to use it.

Anyway in other news. :)


Mini-Update #1:

Trainer Grey Backsprite done. :)

Now I've got the Overworld, Trainer Sprite and Backsprite made I thought I'd ask for some general feedback.



So what do you think?

Mini-Update #2:

I didn't think the Trainer Sprite went 100% with the backsprite or the Overworld so I did a bit of editing.
I have a new Trainer Sprite to show you:



The choice is yours to which one I use.
Depending on your views will change what Grey looks like.

Next task:

-Insert Pokémon Platinum Male bag.
-Add checkgender command to all scripts to allow Male/Female differences.
-Insert the freshly made Backsprite.

Wow this is pretty decent, also loving the english-ness (and not american!) grey not gray and it not tag. Although I think some more FR tiles could be changed though.
Tiles are dynamic currently meaning if I see something I like, it's going in! :D
Thanks for the comment.
I'm happy all the feedback so far is positive!

The story is pretty cool and are you taking this project solo? I mean because it seems you're the only one hacking :3.

I had only two things on my mind:
Paul Newman and a ride home.

Very interesting hack. ;D

The story is very intriguing; You make me want to know more and sort of attracts me. I don't really like the idea of unusual starter pokémon though. I think it should be an average kind of pokémon. You could always change other things for the difficulty.

The time based events sound nice. The Real Time Clock in the screens look nice. The Grey flashback screen looks awesome XD. The text alignment on the bootscreen looks nice. I really hope you progress far.

Good luck.

Thank you, the story is definitely different and more serious to any other Pokémon hack/game.

Currently I am the only person working on this hack. I like to be in charge of everything but that doesn't mean I'm against team work.
A team member must have something I really like for me to accept them because as you can see I can handle pretty much everything myself.

Very interesting hack. ;D

Everybody is posting really great comments.
I've never ever shown any of my work off until now because I didn't think it was any good.
I would always stop Rom Hacking due to me losing interest but this time I feel different as I have the support of the community.

As for all the ASM features you mentioned, I have some great people to thank for helping me. The starters in the game are Shroomish, Corphish and Numel. They follow the typical triangle, they all have 1 evolution and their all from Hoenn.

How are they for Starters?

Mini-Update:

Today I inserted scripts from my spare rom to my final rom.
That mean's I'm getting closer to an Alpha/Beta for you folks. ;)
Anyway fingers crossed if all goes to plan I may have some more screens for tomorrow. :D

This is really beautiful looking hack.
Concepts are very nice and I like player's OW.
Good luck with it =)
Thank you, I've put a lot of work into this as I want people to enjoy playing it. :)

Mini-Update:

I have a Map shot of a route I made yesterday.

The place it features is known as Hartshill Path and is the first route the Player reaches.

Spoiler:




The trees with the pink berries on will contain an event. :)

Credit to Dewitty for making those trees.

Really nicely done map. takes a while to get through it but then getting back down is a lot easier. Id suggest adding a cut tree or rock smash rock so that later it will be a lot easier to et back up instead of fighting low lvl pokemon.
That's not a bad suggestion.
I will have a mess around and find the best place to add some cut trees. :)

I just took a look at the screens and they are pretty good. That's what makes me want to play your hack so badly

But...

The starters in the game are Shroomish, Corphish and Numel. They follow the typical triangle, they all have 1 evolution and their all from Hoenn.

How are they for Starters?
I'd like to make a suggestion as for the starters. My suggestion is to put in Magikarp, Slugma and Shroomish as the starters. They all have one evolution, there is one from each generation and all of the evolved forms have a 4x weakness (Gyarados - Electric; Magcargo - Ground; Breloom - Flying). Probably you'd have to change the stats and learnsets of some of the starters (*cough*Magikarp*cough*), change the wild appearences and remove the fish from actually being able to fish.

Tell me what you think about the suggestion and I understand if you don't use it.

Don't worry, you will be able to get your hands on it soon.
As for your suggestion, I'm afraid I'm keeping the starters as they are.
It's not that it's a bad suggestion as technically the starters would all be equal however I feel nobody would choose Magikarp.

if you need any help just VM me!
Thanks.
Currently I don't need any help but I'll bare you in mind for the future. :)

Wow! This game looks awesome. I hope you do a good job at it.
Trust me, I don't think I'm going to let anyone down.

I would play, and I agree, I don't think anyone would choose Magikarp. And as for another question, I like Grey with pants, not shorts.
In that case you will be happy to know Grey has shed the shorts and is wearing pants!

What a day I've had...
I've had tonnes of homework, I had to go see my Granddad in hospital and I still managed to do some Rom Hacking to bring you an update.

So here it is:

Spoiler:




It's just a new battle background.
It's similar to the firered background but features the D/P/PT grass.
I'm sure it's something you've seen before. :)

Anyway that's it, more coming soon!

So it's been a day or so since my last update so I think its time for another!

Today my update is:

The Berry Tree:

This idea was inspired by the headbutt tree but it has a twist... Berries.





How does it work?

It works randomly.
There is a 5/20 chance of obtaining a type of berry.
There is a 5/20 chance of being attacked by a Pokémon.
Leaving a 10/20 chance of you not getting anything at all.

The script sets a flag (similar to that of the CUT TREE) meaning the script can not be used again until the Player has left the map.

You might ask, what if someone milks it for items?
Well due to the 1/4 chance of even recieving an item, it will take the Player a long time to rack up multiple items.

This Tree is merely an extra feature and a bit of fun. :)
